Many fond memories of Clarence and Donna when I was a young child. I met them through Marie Wagner and daddy Bill who we considered our family and protectors. The Yeo family became our family as well. Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss.

I remember Clarence from our archery league. He always greeted with a ready smile and friendly outgoing personality. Condolences to all the family.
